Major corporations and government
Our team acts for many major corporations, government departments and agencies in relation to their accommodation needs.
Our team has advised tenants on a multitude of leasing issues. Through a wealth of experience obtained from many years of practice, we have been successful in saving tenants hundreds of thousands of dollars by advising on the correct interpretation of market rent review and make good provisions in leases.
At DibbsBarker, our team works closely with our Construction and Major Projects team, for example, where a purpose built facility is to be constructed. This approach enables us to ensure that the agreement for lease, lease, incentive and/or fitout deed and construction contract all work together to provide the required outcome and that risk is managed appropriately.
In addition to providing valuable service, the team also runs free seminars on various leasing issues, as and when important developments occur. Our team also produces monthly Landlord and Tenant Alerts as a free service to clients.
